The Electric Prunes
I Had Too Much To Dream Last Night
Reprise single, November 1966
Few songs embodied the changing face of 60s pop like the Prunes’ second single. From its backwards guitar intro to its shivery effects, primal boom and fuzztone riff, it was at once experimental and giddy with the commercial possibilities of psychedelia. I Had Too Much To Dream was a major US hit, ushering in a new age of populist acid-rock. It later became the lead track on 1972’s Nuggets compilation.
